The COOL Program - Domestic Violence Intervention

Why is the program 26 weeks?

It didn't take over night to learn these behaviors, therefore it will take times challenge the idea of learning healthier ways of communicating.

What is the difference between anger management and domestic violence?

Anger is an emotion, domestic violence is about power and control.

Why is there a no drop policy in regards to domestic crimes in our county?

Domestic Violence is a crime like another other crime and has horrible effects on families and communities. In the state of NC, there is a no drop policy in regards to Domestic Violence Charges in Forsyth County, however counties across the state may apply this policy how they see fit.

Why is there a cost for fees?

We try our best to keep our fees as reasonable as possible, with that we charge for services in order to be able to cover our cost of providing quality staff members. We also use our resources to support nonprofit organizations in the community use focus is to keep families and communities safe.

Why can't you do couples counseling in place of group counseling?

It is the policy of the North Carolina department of Administration Council for women, that anyone ordered to an abuser treatment program may not take couples counseling in place of psycho-educational classes. It is also our position that if there were already a healthy relationship established, more than likely, there perhaps would not have been a need for the authorities to get involved.

Sometimes everyone needs there own time and space to learn healthy ways of communicating in relationships and with their children. The sad part of that is there are a large number of adults have never had a positive and healthy relationship to model after. The good news is that violence is a learned behavior therefore it can be unlearned! In other words, no one was born to be violent!
